As you sit in wait with nothing to do this evening while the Lord of the Rings Online servers go down at 4pm EST in preparation for Mines of Moria releasing tomorrow, you should have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the complete release notes for this new expansion. Although we here at Massively have been pumping you full of info on Moria, it's handy to have the very latest and most complete patch notes in one place for full review.
